Happy new year everyone!
The printer has sent me an advance copy of the Standard Edition of "The Story Of
Inc" book, and I'm really happy with the results. See a couple of
pictures below. The blacks are black, the colors are vibrant, the
binding looks solid, overall I think the printing company did great, and
I'm sure you'll agree once your copy arrives.
All the rest of the Standard Edition books (including all the copies for
the kickstarter folk) are currently waiting to be put on the boat for
their cross Pacific trip to the Amazon warehouse (I had heard they were
already on the boat, but now I have the official word that they are just
ready for shipment).
What about the Premium Edition you say? Almost there, the cover needs a
little more time to cook, but once it's ready they'll be heading across
the pond as well.
I'll give you more updates when I have them, thank you so much for
believing in this project and being patient. I so wish shipping several
tons of books across the globe was a faster affair, but sadly, it still
takes longer than we'd all like. They're coming!

The Thusolans are a species of intelligent liquid dwelling lifeforms, each creature is almost microscopic, but together they form hive minds capable of incredible computational power and limited telepathy. Their spacecraft are basically giant bottles of liquid, each filled with enough Thusolans to form a local hive, these teardrop craft traverse the galaxy in search of raw materials for their interstellar projects.

Ganymede Freighter Aphelion is a transport ship that hauls raw materials between installations on the moons of Jupiter. In the future, mining crews melt giant sink holes in Ganymede's icy crust down to the salt water oceans below, a little like ice fishing in the arctic. The ocean is used as a source of propellant for deep space exploration ships. Freighter Aphelion travels between the moons in space, and then lands on the Ganymede Ocean where it converts to an amphibious vehicle, glides along the water to the port, and receives its cargo. Inspired by Star Wars ships, submarines and tug boats, after an initial sketch, this image was painted digitally over a few simple 3d blocks.
